The December 10th issue of The Economist said, “The emerging Trump strategy towards business has some promising elements, but others that are deeply troubling.” I agree.
In his campaign, Mr. Trump slammed Wall Street and Goldman Sachs, however his actions seem to bely his previous position. From the early days of his campaign, one of Donald Trump’s rallying cries was to “beware of Wall Street… I’m not going to let Wall Street get away with murder; Wall Street has caused tremendous problems for us.”
Yet as a post on PBS News Hour asks, “Does a Wall Street Cabinet discredit Trump’s
Main Street Message?”
It appears that Mr. Trump is surrounding himself with Wall Street, with now three Goldman Sachs appointees.
